    Post Marcaine & lidocaine injections into knee


    Several times, my doctors injected marcaine and lidocaine (also used in nerve blocks) into my left knee, where I have RSD. Every time, my knee became redder and less painful. Could this help the doctor tell I have RSD?

    Does any of you, even if you do not have RSD, have experience with marcaine and lidocaine injections into the knee? Did they help you or not? How did your body parts physically react to the injections?

    How do marcaine and lidocaine work?

    Hi babydoll,

    I doubt that the injections into your knee can help the doc decide if you have RSD or not. The injections have to be into the sympathetic nerves that are in your spine to diagnose RSD. He/She might be doing the injections to help your "other" knee pain (pain not caused by RSD).
